Paris: A True Story

Last year, I took a marvelous trip with my boyfriend to the City of Light.


Between days walking the city and nights strolling the Seine, it was a trip of enchantment.









In one of our Sunday morning walks, we entered a maze of a flea market where I came across Joe, a merchant from West Africa. I think Joe knew I was not especially skilled in the art of negotiating, in French, with a wily bead trader. Or at least that's what I told myself after the initial flush of triumph faded and I counted how few Euros were left in my wallet.

But as it turns out, the beads I bought in Paris are worth far more than I realized -- they're magic. As soon as I put them on, I feel happy. It's that simple and that delightful. Who doesn't want a little magic in their life?




This feel-good, globe trotting necklace showcases grooved, vintage silver metal beads in conversation with indigo and recycled sea-foam glass, black & white ceramic, and clay, brought together with a vintage brass clasp. Featuring beads from all over the globe -- Africa, by way of France, Italy, and of course, Brooklyn -- you might say this necklace is a unique, one-of-a-kind personal passport to style.

From PLUMAGE, my fall collection devoted to looking fabulous and going gorgeous all the way.

the beads look great. I have been to paris and it is wonderful. I went with a one of my girlfriends when I was single almost 10 years ago. It is my goal to go there with my hubby one day.

Aww, you're so pretty and the necklace is gorgeous! I can see why it would make someone feel happy.

Paris is so romantic, I've been twice but never with hubby, it's one of our goals.

Paris was one of my all time favorite trips. It's even more of a walking city than New York, if that's possible. But you never feel lost.

True story -- we went to a restaurant and the couple next to us was speaking English, so we struck up a conversation. Turns out they were in Paris 30 years earlier, before their children were born and now that everyone is out of the nest, they decided to come back. And have dinner in the same restaurant.

You'll get there ladies!
